the house…by chris story
For no particular reason…just a memory of a home I really love.
Listen to the Mountain!
What’s it saying I asked? ~ Just listen said the ski instructor.
Downhill skiing is an art and a sport. After you take a lesson or two, you can make your way down nearly every groomed trail. The artists carving and sculpting the slopes make it look so easy.
What’s their secret?
Seriously…the best skier in the world racing down the mountain is literally falling the entire time.
Of course it’s a very controlled fall. Almost without exception, the controlled fall is learned by actually falling.
When you’re learning to ski, gravity is your mortal enemy. After you become more comfortable with boards on your fee, gravity is your best friend.
Buckminster Fuller said, “Don’t fight forces. Use them!”
Listen to the Mountain.
When your living on purpose…for sure you’ll be living on top of the world.
I’m Chris Story
from On Top of the world Radio
He was content. Happy beyond his wildest dreams.
Or so he thought.
One day he met a man who had more.
More money…More adventures…More everything.
Suddenly he felt empty, incomplete and contentment escaped him. He left his quiet life for the hustle of the city.
In search of more…he lost his perspective and his family.
At the end of his journey he was alone…Empty.
As it turns out…the grass was greenest right there where he’d been standing.
Are you chasing the shadow on the other side of the fence?
Enjoy the sunshine where are you …with what you’ve got.
How can you turn a Dream into a nightmare?
Easy! Do nothing.
Literally do nothing. Say nothing and accomplish nothing.
If you want to make your dreams come true…YOU simply make a plan and then follow through.
Frank Woolworth said that a dream never hurt anyone…as long as you keep working right behind the dream to make as much of it come real as you can.
Dream away! Just be sure that your dreams don’t find you sleeping on the job.
Get busy putting your dream into a plan…and then follow that plan into the light of day!
When you put your dream into writing…it becomes a goal. And that Goal can be accomplished!
Wake up to your best life…On Top of the World!

The Grass is always Greener!
You have heard that expression a million times. Let’s look at it a little closer.
- Why is the Grass greener…Over there?
Because the caretaker of that yard waters it, fertilizes it…they take time to care and tend to the grass.
The greener grass has the solid foundation of good soil…Greener grass doesn’t happen by accident.
No…the grass is greener because it’s cared for…someone is paying very close attention to it.
So the next time you find yourself coveting that greener grass…ask yourself if you are putting the time, love and attention into your own backyard?
Reach…strive….become….grow….and enjoy the journey!
Start right now…today…where you are….with what you’ve got….and who you’ve got!
Soon…you’ll find the grass is greener….right under your own feet!
May you be living “On Top of the World”…Chris
This is a short and sweet version of what I might have said!
What an interesting word. Are you in Control?
“Of What?” you’d ask.
Are you in control of your thoughts?
Control your thoughts…control your circumstances.
Your where you are based on how you think! Clair Cook was a 45 year old working mom hiding a dream. Her dream was to be a writer. One day she decided to go for it.
She wrote her first book sitting in her mini-van during the wee hours of the morning while waiting for her daughter in swim practice. Her second book became a best seller and made into the movie Must Love Dogs.
Take control of your thoughts….and you’ll control your circumstances.
Claire Cook is a living example that it’s never too late. In fact she wrote the book titled: It’s never too late.
Control your thoughts….and you’ll control your circumstances on top of the world.
Here’s to your failures!
Seriously…Johnny Cash said, “You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone.”
- Failure is best defined as a temporary setback.
If you are afraid to even try something because you fear criticism…then remember what Booker T. Washington said:
One Man can’t hold another one down in the ditch without staying there with him.
Get out of the ditch!
Leave your critics in the mud…while you rise up and conquer your fears.
YOU are not a failure…you may have experienced failure…but that was yesterday.
Today…tomorrow and from now on, you are a winner in training.
You might fall down, in fact you will fall down, but it’s what happens next that matters most.
Fail your way to the top of the World, where YOU belong.
